Foster conversation between leadership and employees

In large organizations, executives are often unaware of issues and employees don’t often have insight into broader initiatives. You need an easy way to keep executives informed about what’s going on in the company, keep employees engaged and informed about larger goals, and foster conversation across the company.

 

Create open communication between leadership and employees with Yammer. Executives can post information about the company’s mission, culture, and strategic initiatives with employees. You can also hold live events in Yammer that include real-time Q&A sessions to connect with your teams.

 

Create an internal leadership blog where leaders can share company news and updates using dynamic content created with Office 365 or third-party apps. Post published pieces to Yammer so employees can ask questions that leadership can answer directly.

 

To help leadership coordinate responses to more difficult questions or discuss how to communicate a new initiative, create a Microsoft Teams channel. You can connect Yammer to a tab in the channel, so leadership can work together and post content in real time. Use the Files tab to share company and organizational missions, values, and goals, so leadership can easily access materials.

  • Hold live events and create open forums for Q&A.
  • Develop a blog to share new initiatives and changes.
  • Help leadership coordinate response plans to company goals and initiatives.
